The Fat Man is here:

There was also a South African version - not as good as the American show, although still pretty decent. But nothing can top the way J. Scott Smart said "murder" at the start of the American version. Just a terrific show - one of the ones with lots and lots of lost episodes. . . . **sniff**

Nightbeat is set in Chicago - good atmosphere and city detail. The main character, Randy Stone played by Frank Lovejoy, is likeable, there are good "twist endings" to some of the story. Very solid writing in general on this one:

Nightbeat sounds especially interesting and I've never heard of that one.
